Woman from Nova Scotia Helps Syrian Refugees in Turkey

Working with the Universalist Unitarian Church in Halifax, the sponsorship agreement holder for a family trying to relocate to Canada, Sakurai has a mission to reunite a family torn apart by the civil war in the country of Syria.

Although never meeting the family, she had been assisting them for months. She even took a detour from her recent vacation to Greece and visited with the Hamo family trying to speed up the laborious refugee sponsorship process. Some of the members of the family have relocated to Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, but many of them are still trapped in Turkey. While visiting with the family, Sakurai and two translators spent close to 12 hours filling out several application forms. She said the family would be an asset to Canada. Not only do they have skills and are hard-working, but they are also willing to learn. “And it’s a family unit. They deserve to be reunited,” Sakurai said. The group Sakurai belongs to sponsored Shahnaz Hamo, Rezan Iso, and son, Ali, to immigrate to Mahone Bay in 2016. She pledged to assist the rest of the family members to get to Nova Scotia. Hamo’s parents, siblings, nephews, and in-laws have been residing in Istanbul since 2012, after fleeing Damascus. They are a part of a Kurdish minority in Turkey.
